Not that impressed with Chakvetadze. She doesn't have much power on her groundstrokes, and is way too high risk with her serve. She could be a top 10-20 player I guess. Nothing special.

Yeah, but I'm sure Serena is pumping her fist after a great shot of hers other than an error that an opponent produced. (ie Chak pumps her fist after a Davy error, pretty rude. )

Chakvetadze had her chances in the match and made some crucial errors...she played pretty well even though her forehand is pretty unimpressive...her ground game is kind of hitchy but once she gets into a rhythm she's tough.

Those aren't annoying! :(

Maria does the same exact thing, hers are annoying then also.

Serena does the same thing, useless discussion though...


Lindsey brought more game tonight than she did against Dani. But Anna appeared nervous, her first semi and in front of an unfriendly crowd. Never got her first serve rolling which is a weapon, and too many errors. But is still a milestone for her getting so far in an important tournament! She should be ranked near 20th after this. Go Anna!! :D

By the scoreline I am sure Linds could have cared less what Anna was doing on the other side of the net. Davey did her talking with her raquet and that's why she is in the final tomorrow not Anna.

I think she looked very nervous, so I dunno if we saw her best stuff or not... who knows? I've only seen her this one time and a small part of a match @ the FO. Her serve was too inconsistent, maybe that was nerves... When she made a 1st serve it was effective but she didn't put enough in play. She hit some good shots, but I think her nerves got the best of her & LD was just too good on the big points.

No fist pumping is ever rude unless you do it at the handshake. Just my opinion.

Statement of the obvious. Davenport, the long time and soon again to be #1 was expected to win this match. Anna did good for herself and her young career making the semis and picking up 6 games from such a caliber of player.

What is she supposed to do? Glorify her?

Beaing serious... no it is not rude. When they play tennis, they enter into a psychological state higher than they seem. Anna doesn't care about anything. The crowd is unnoticeable, each point is like if it were each battle in a war. Cheering herself for the other mistake doesn't mean she is rude. She is cheering herself for enduring the point. Afterall she is cheering herself cause she won.. and hse needs that confidence.


Don't dare to call her rude for doing nothing bad, netiehr rude.

Same here. The eyes, braided pony tail, manerisms, emotions at all Pierce like. Her game isn't like Pierce though!!
